The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-portable offers great flexibility, USB 3.0, and a large amount of storage. It also works with both Macs and PCs without having to be reformatted.
The GoFlex Ultra's USB 3.0 performance could be better and the drive doesn't include a USB 3.0 add-in card for computers that don't yet have this connection.
Even with the slightly low USB 3.0 performance, the GoFlex Ultra still makes an excellent portable external hard drive for people who need to expand their computer's storage.

a little bulkier than most portable drives, but it's definitely a great compromise of storage capacity, size, price. the seagate sata port adapters is also great and it allows for easy upgrade fot the interface of your choosing.
Needed external drive for back-ups and large files like font collections and downloads - ended up with this little whiz.
Super value for your money and if hooked-up to USB3 it makes
back-up a breeze
Similar drives go for as much as better than twice the money,
so you be the JUDGE!
Read and Write speeds not spectacular (around 20Mb/s on my USB2 port) but the price / GB ratio is very good. I bought mine for 120USD on March 2012. Its a bit heavy not like the normal external ones but you get used to it.
great hdd, it's my 2-nd of this kind, i dropped the 1-st one from quite high but worked excelent before I dropped it, this one was cheapest out there and works great
